Updated with quotes for January 2015:

Classic:
This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.
— G. B. Shaw, Man and Superman, 1903.

 

Direct:
The laurels of history go not to the swift or strong or brave, much less to the victimized, but to risk-takers who by a combination of goodness and cleverness tailored to a specific circumstance, succeed in enhancing life.
"To Appease or Not," 2002.

Garden moment for January:

Bananas along a boulevard in St. Augustine, Florida, about the northern limit in North America of where this fruit can be grown.
